Who doesn’t love chocolate chip muffins for breakfast?
Greek yogurt chocolate chip muffins are the ultimate breakfast muffin that everyone in your family will love.
These muffins have become such a favorite in our house that I went on to also make these mini chocolate chip muffins using the same ingredients and even these mini blueberry muffins using similar ingredients.
These chocolate chip ones are perfect for when I have that sweet tooth.
These simple and wholesome muffins are made with lighter ingredients, naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup, and pack a hidden protein punch thanks to greek yogurt.
Each muffin is only around 300 calories and has 9 grams of protein!
They are super fast to make and area ready from start to finish in less than a half hour.
how to make chocolate chip muffins with greek yogurt
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients:
- whole wheat pastry flour
- baking powder
- baking soda
If you do not have whole wheat pastry flour, you can use all purpose flour in the same amount.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients:
- greek yogurt
- pure maple syrup
- vanilla extract
- melted coconut oil
Greek yogurt is the key to the super crazy fluffiness that these muffins get.
They are so soft inside!
Add the dry ingredients to the wet, then use a rubber spatula to mix until just combined.
It’s key here that you do not over mix the batter.
Over mixing makes muffins denser, and we want that light and fluffy texture that everyone loves.
Once combined, add in the mini chocolate chips.
I love using mini chocolate chips instead of regular when I am making these muffins.
Mini chocolate chips means there is chocolate in every bite!
Now that you have added the mini chocolate chips, your batter will look like this.
Line a muffin tin with parchment paper muffin liners.
I use these every time I make muffins, as they won’t stick to the wrapper at all!
Parchment paper muffin liners will change you forever.
Never lose part of a muffin to the wrapper again!
I like using an ice cream scoop to scoop muffin batter as it is just the right amount.
You can also use two spoons to fill the muffin liners full of batter.
Top with optional chocolate chips sprinkled on top!
Bake your greek yogurt chocolate chip muffins at 350 degrees for around 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
These greek yogurt chocolate chip muffins are:
- light and fluffy on the inside
- full of protein (9g each!)
- kid approved
- super easy to make
- made from ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry
In short, they are a winner all around!
Oh my gosh! These are by far the best muffins I’ve ever made. My husband said they tasted like chocolate chip cookies. I had to intervene because he would have ate half the pan hahaha! My kids also loved them. Thank you for this delicious, yet healthy muffin recipe.
Can I freeze these chocolate chip muffins?
Yes! One of my favorite things is to have extra muffins in the freezer.
Simply pop one out and microwave it for a quick and yummy breakfast or snack!

- 1 cup plain whole fat greek yogurt
- ¼ cup coconut oil, melted

- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup real maple syrup

Tips for light and fluffy texture
Be sure not to over mix the batter, as this will result in too dense muffins. The key is to mix until just combined, the same goes when you add in the chocolate chips.

Cami use sugar instead of maple syrup? How much?

I have not tested it without a liquid sweetener, so I am not sure how it would turn out. Let me know if you try it! If you do, I would substitute an equal amount.
